The tilt links are made out of aluminium 6061. They are a 1/4 inch thick by 1 inch wide. These are test pieces used to verify operation and motion path. If binding becomes an issue then they can be replaced by links designed to be used with flanged ball bearings for smoother operation.
We completed the bars for the scissor lift. We cut the square tubing to size. These wont take much time to make as they just need to be cut and drilled.
The links were supposed to made with waterjet cutting. However, in the interest of time and money we decided to make them by cutting and drilling flat stock instead.
